82 of the last 100 goals I've conceded have been undefendable cutbacks. Time to uninstall.

This has gone from my being favourite FIFA since 13 before Christmas, to so ❤️❤️❤️❤️ unplayable I've had to uninstall it. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ EA and their pathetic patches that cater for shitkids.

Every single game of classic cup is park the bus > through ball spam > cutbacks that my AI is incapable of marking.

Every game of rivals is park the bus > through ball spam > cutbacks that my AI is incapable of marking.

Every game of friendlies is is park the bus > through ball spam > cutbacks that my AI is incapable of marking.

Every game of WL is is park the bus > through ball spam > cutbacks that my AI is incapable of marking.


82 of the last 100 goals that I've conceded have been the same pathetic driven pass across goal that my active defender refuses to intercept, and my other defender AI refuses to mark the attacker for a tap in. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ everything about this compan

    This has definitely got worse with every patch. It’s like eas goal to break this game in every way possible

    The old and fishy "tap tap tipitipitipi tap in taparou tap tap in in tap in" doing mind games with the players... I feel you, OP.

    I try to wait until the last moment to press B (Xbox) with one of my CBs after the cut back is done to perform a block. It works 2 out of 3 times. Not 100% effective. But it's something.

    Don't let the abuse of mechanics gets to you. Just keep going and bounce back with beautiful goals.

    It really has.

    I used to see so many different types of goals scored around November/December, now it's almost exclusively the exact same type of goal.

    Pathetic game, it had potential to be the best in years, but EA insisted on pandering to the lower denomenator of rats.

    Lmao k

    I'm defensively solid normally, that's why I barely concede 'regular' goals, but there's nothing you can do when your AI refuses to block the cutbacks, and your opponent is only spamming that pass across goal over and over and over.

    Aye Danny is right here, the majority of people you play usually stick to one tactic.. skillers, counter, hog possession and the classic cut back… Once you figure out what, you tailor your defence in a way to stop this…

    Rarely will people try something different unless it’s the ol constant pressure tactic late on to try and grab a winner / equaliser…

    If I concede the first time and early; fair play… if I concede again like this within the game it’s purely my fault for not adjusting…

    Sorry but… :#

    2nd man press the ball carrier and guard the man that is the obvious cut back….just this last weekend league I must have stopped 15-20 of them

    Like someone above said — these people usually do it all the time too

    Nope, I'm just going to copy+paste the same response

    "I'm defensively solid normally, that's why I barely concede 'regular' goals, but there's nothing you can do when your AI refuses to block the cutbacks, and your opponent is only spamming that pass across goal over and over and over"

    You can't tailor your defence when you have no control over whether your AI will make the block or not.

    And if you make the cutback rather than the ball carrier, it's too easy to walk along the byline for an even better cutback angle, or slam a shot near post against the braindead GKs.

    Hats off to ur dedication for counting those

    😂😂😂

    Cutbacks are a pain but to call them undefendable is just plain wrong.

    Usually I'd agree but when you read it, place the defender in front of the attacker and it goes through the defender, you can't defend it

    When I've done everything single thing correct in the defence, but my player directly in the way of the cutback has failed the interception (which happens so often)... that's undefendable.

    When EA want that ball to go to the attacker, there's nothing you can do at times.

    Just use rb to second man press the guy passing and defend the passing lane. Not difficult

    This. Depending on the angle I’m not even bothered if they shoot sometimes.

    Do you sit your team inside your box? I have found by far the best way to score against people who play deep, drop back and rely on auto blocks is to get down the sides of the box and sweat it across for a tap in

    You are simply lying to yourself pal.

    You are neither not solid in defense nor have you done everything correct in defense if you keep conceding cutbacks.

    If you ain't going 19-0 in basically every WL and you ain't winning almost all your games in rivals then you haven't done everything correct.

    Anybody can concede the occasional cutback with a lapse in concentration but he definetly can't blame the game if he concedes 82 out of 100 them 😂

    There are definetely "undefendeable" goals, but those usually include you putting in 5 successful tackles and the ball bouncing back 5x.

    Fair enough then.

    But to concede 82 cutbacks only to claim that you couldn't do anything, because your AI didn't block it...

    Earlier in the game cycle, driven passes to the strikers and cut backs were massively OP.

    They definitely rectified the latter, and slightly nerfed by upping interceptions. It was an improvement. They've clearly rolled it back to then, and by increasing the depth between mids and defenders, have c*cked it right up.

    You shouldn’t have to manually defend all 11 players. It would be different if offense was manual but people can just spam laser passes into the box. They really need to buff defense.
